I hope you are right. Fact is though, all it takes is a change in ownership for whatever reason and all bets are off. McNair could give it up, or, God forbid, worse. The Texans could get another Jim Crane at the controls. 20 years is a generation away.

I hope they don't go anywhere. I couldn't manage that type of "move" twice and still remain an NFL fan in any shape or form. As to selling out Reliant, the Texans are way past their grace period with the fans now having finally won a playoff game at home. If the Texans were to go into a skid lasting over a couple of seasons, those sell outs could be in danger with the Houston sports fans. Just ask every other sports franchise that's ever called Houston it's home.

I think it has to be the Titans. Obviously the shear history of the teams but also it really seems like the players are developing an animosity. The legend of AJ beating the F out of Innegan will carry on.
Hard to argue with anything said above. I pretty much feel the same way. For there to be a rivalry, you have to play the team fairly regularly. I honestly hate the Titans a lot more than the Cowboys. The Cowboys are just a fun team for me to kind of make fun of, considering that they're stuck with Jerry until he dies...

It's the sad truth of the Cowboys. I have converted alot of Cowboy's fans in our area. My dad was one of their biggest fans and I slowly turned him into a Texans Fan. Now we always make the longer drive to Houston rather than just going up the Interstate and watching Jerry's Team.

Or do you believe the Titans, with the still sore feeling of resentment of knowing they are the old Oiler's create enough intensity for them to be considered our Greatest Enemy?

Or will the Colt's continue to be a pain in our neck(yes that was a shot at Manning) for years to come and position themselves as our adversary?

Or possibly the Jaguars? Or whatever their mascot will be if they are moved to LA.

I just wanted to know ya'lls opinions.
Why are you thinking 20 years down the line.....????
You dont even know if we are going to have a team in 20 years. We may all be dead in 20 years...
Or maybe our team got sold to someone who wanted a new stadium and the City of Houston did not have any money and the voters would not appove bonds......and the owner ended up selling the team to Los Angeles.....dont laugh....it happened before with the Oilers......It can happen again......

Just as a random timeline. Okay so let me rephrase it for you: Assuming that the Team isn't moved, and assuming that all of us make it to twenty years, and assuming Aliens, Monsters, Gay Vampires, or Morons who can't understand when someone put's "20 years" as a time frame it is understood that the team is still in existence(people like you) have taken over and destroyed the world. Who will be our biggest rival in the future? There, did that make it more simple for you or do I need to use a series of grunts to communicate with you?

haha nah I'm just playing man.

See you mentioned aliens, vampires, morons, etc.. but no one mentioned future technology.. with the way Mr. Goodell has manage the league and turned it powder puff, hell we may not even have REAL people playing the game anymore it could be robots i.e IRobot or REAL STEEL or some other type of futuristic crap. that being said i think our biggest rival is goodell and the league itself considering all the rule changes every year turning it more and more into flag football..

Default Re: 20 Years From Now: Who Will Be Our Biggest Rival?

It is irrelevant to think that far away in football terms. 20 years is 4 to 5 generations in football terms. No players that we know today will still be in the league (except a few lucky kickers/punters). Almost every current coach and administrator will be retired and out of football. Dynasties that nobody could have imagined (see: Patriots) will have risen and fallen. There's about a 100% chance that there will be franchise relocation(s), franchise expansion(s), and division realignment.

We've got some good young talent on this team and should remain above-average for the next few years. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

teams rise and fall too quickly. For me rivals are whomever is ahead of us in standings. Respect all fear none.

Actually the Mayan calender ended 7-8 months ago. It did not account for "Leap year" so you no longer have to worry.
